Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, is home to many major temples and holy sites. One temple conducts funerals of Hindu followers by the side of a river in full view of the public.

The deceased are burned on a pyre while the family mourns. Very few Nepalis have heard the gospel and even less have become Christians - a reported 1.2%.

How to pray

  • For evangelists in Nepal earnestly seeking to reach the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • For Nepalis living among the Himalayas in some of the hardest to reach places on earth - pray for individuals and organisations taking aid and the gospel to the top of the world
  • For the reversal of recent laws outlawing Christian evangelism
